Smashing Project Life

All the amazing Project Life posts in the blogosphere inspired me to start my own version of PL. In Canada, it's really hard to get the Project Life kit, so I decided to improvise.
Santa was kind enough to bring Sid and me a Smash book this year and I had no idea what I was going to do with it. At first, I thought it would be an inspiration journal, but I quickly remembered how many of those unfinished beauties I have lying around. So, a light bulb went off in my head and Smashing Project life was born.
I'm keeping it really simple. One page (or more) per week. Point form journaling. Small pictures cut out with scissors and glued in. No lengthy design strategies to follow. Just free form memories.
I'm keeping track of daily events with the Momento app on my Ipod and filling the book in weekly. And yes, I'm already behind! (Mostly due to the fact that my printer died this hoo!)
Here's a look at the first few pages (click the pictures to see them bigger):

My title page is a little muddled as I started it when the book was still going to be an inspiration journal. Thanks for taking a peek!
